100 Reasons to Eat and Drink Downtown Today (and Tomorrow, and the Day After That)
Minetta Tavern. Because if the cheap thrill of seeing celebs doesn't sustain you, a burger will.
El Cantinero. Because our soft spot for Tex Mex knows no bounds.
Thelewala. For Indian street food like kati rolls and chaat, any time of the day.
Mamoun's Falafel. Fine and cheap, and better still if you've been drinking.
Lupa. Because this Batali/Bastianich joint still has it going on. Sit at the bar alone with a glass of bubbly and a bowl of pasta -- it doesn't get much better than this.
L'Artusi. For warm, cozy, Italian in the West Village.
Fedora. Because this candlelit nook is lovely, and the food and service are laid-back, but spot on.
Corcoron. Because it's soba season, and this is just the place to celebrate.
wd-50. Because their new tasting menu eloquently tells the story of New York City, but if you sit at the bar, you don't have to order it.
Best Fuzhou. Because this Fujianese restaurant takes its seafood seriously.
